Jose Canseco To Fight Hong Man Choi At DREAM 9


Robert K sent along the following:

In some of the most bizarre (yet totally awesome) match making to ever come out of the “Land of the Rising Sun” disgraced former baseball star Jos Canseco will face Korean giant Hong Man Choi in the first round of DREAM's Super Hulk Tournament. Yes I said it Super-Hulk-Tournament. OK, I’ll give you 30 seconds to digest that before I continue.

The full tittle is in fact even scarier: “Super Hulk Tournament ~World Superman Championship~”. Or as I like to call it “SHTWSC”. The match-up is confirmed and will take place on May 26th. Also set to participate are Bob Sapp, Sokoudjou, Gegard Mousasi and Mark Hunt. The full line-up is not yet complete, a major match-up will be announced closer to the event according to organizers (My tip Michael J. Fox vs. King Kong Bundy).

Since his fall from grace Conseco has been making ends meet by fighting in several exhibition bouts . In 2007 former football player Vai Sikahema accepted a challenge to fight Canseco for a reported $30,000. An ill prepared Conseco was knocked out the in the first round. Most recently Canseco fought radio host and former child star Danny Bonaduce; the three-round battle ended in a majority draw. The fight was heavily publicized on the Howard Stern show.

Outside the “Hulk” tournament there is in fact some credible MMA taking place including a pretty big lightweight bout between Tatsuya Kawajiri and J.Z.Calvan and a welterweight title fight between Ronaldo Jacare vs. “Mayhem” Miller.
